what is this cringe timeline
>>574470930Why his profile pic is a penis.
This guy tries so hard to stay hipIt's pretty sad
I seriously hope that someone nukes the internet and makes it unusable for the rest of time. It has damaged society enough, and we may never recover at this point.
reminder that this is what spacefags actually believe
>>574471071yeah pretty much
>>574470930soulless chink shit.
YAAAASS BRAND SAID THING
>>574471098You're not going to buy a crypto lionz nonfungible token?
>>574470930Is there some kind of Genshin stock or coin or something I can buy in anticipation?
>>574471196I can't take crypto seriously if these people treat it as randomized furry OCs. I keep thinking about getting into it then realize these are the people I have to listen to.
>>574471098Good. This is how men are made, through societal collapse and degradation.
>>574471423holy fuck it looks even worse here
>>574470930>Help him build a penis-shaped rocket to get to CelestiaI can't wait.
Don't worry, every Chink drone will have his day.The bugmen will steal his local company factories and ban him from China, it's only a matter of time.
>>574471118Do people really think this isn't CGI?

>>574471814>>574471087most powerful rocket in the world testing landing
>>574471367Who cares about that anon? There is money to be made, even if it looks completely retarded, take anime figurines for example, they are a genuine investment since the price always goes up, and they are also the best way to measure inflation
>>574470930Based as fuck. Fuck chink impact and fuck gachas.
>>574471678Devil's advocate: If they can pay for all that can't they spring for better CGI?
>americans are completely unaware of everything happening in there country
>>574471970you would think so but apparently not
>>574470930This is honestly a great moment for Genshin, I don't understand what the problem is.
Elon-sama I kneel
>>574472038>there ESLs, everyone.
>>574471814Good engineering that uneducated mutts have to instantly conspiracy theorize about.
>>574472137when they see it doing this, they will have a aneurism https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2bnv7hL6NA
>>574471814Tech progress that fuels the schizo
Where's the Genshin-coin to buy up before this memer makes it jump by 3 gorillion %?
>>574471098Sometimes i wish i had a super power to take control over the internet i would make it so it is abdolutely impossible to earn money from playing videogames or eatimh absurds amounts of food, i would only allow actually well researched documentaries and independent pieces of media to earn money i think it would help the internet move towards it’s true potential while i figure shit out
>>574470930Did he steal the going into games machine?
>>574471196I tried working out what was going on with the lions and it seems to literally just be a pyramid scheme? You get a cut of every future sale of a token you once owned. Thing is, you don't even need Blockchain to do that type of scheme, a normal ledger of sales would work fine. But sprinkle a little magic crypto nobody-understands-it technology dust over it and people let their guard down and fall for the stupidest shit.
>>574472416You can't make money from Genshit Chinkpact through, you can only lose money.
>>574471856>>574471902>>574472137Well i must say a rocket that can land is impressive on its own right, i just hope it isn't for that retarded ballistic missile transportation system proposed a while ago
>>574471590only the initial part is CGI, its pretty obvious with that lens flare. The rocket landed for real tho, take your meds, schizofascist.
>>574471814waste of money
>>574472504its the same rocket, theoretically it can do it but red tape will make so it never happens imothe DOD is actually looking into it, calling it rocket cargo
>>574472543none of its cgisee >>574471742>>574471632>>574471423it was filmed from multiple angles and seen by thousands, you can see it from brownsville the nearest town
>OMG I LOVE SPACE
Waiting for Genshin Impact Musk token ($GIM)
>>574472697I look like this and say this
>>574472618>rocket cargoThey didn't learn anything with the tunnel in las vegas or the hyperloop scam did they? The rocket is cool though, but not for retarded shit like intercontinental transportation, surely smart people will notice that putting people inside rockets or having a landing platform within 10 miles from your big cities is a terrible fucking idea, right?
>>574473064DOD doesn't care about any of that shit, getting essential shit to anywhere in the world quickly has some uses for themlas vegas tunnel worked fine btw
>>574471814ur mum's dildo, the smallest one she has LMAO
>>574472534Musk wants to be a little girl???
>>574473340we all do
>>574473231>las vegas tunnel worked finelmao
>>574471098This but only social media shits like twitter and facebook.
>>574473456care to elaborate? it met all expectations that were set for them
Why do people still take this conman seriously?
>>574472438You don't need block chain for any of this shit. Especially not the bullshit mmo's and fighting games scams people are trying to sell before disappearing with the money. At best it's just the fucking CSS skins market. That's all any of this shit is.
>>574473624Why wouldn't they?
>>574473719>>574473942What did Musk innovate exactly? He's just reusing decades old tech and discoveries and pretending he is revolutionizing science. Also there is nothing of value on the moon so they might as well stop wasting resources.
>>574474014Reusible rockets and boosters gor one thing. Musk is absolutely "over-hyped" but you're just a retarded contrarian repeating others opinions as well.
>>574474014Nice try at moving the goalpost.NASA lets him launch astronauts into orbit on his rockets. You think they would give that job to some conman?
>>574474014>He's just reusing decades old tech and discoveriesonly one other rocket has done a propulsive landing demo before and it never went anywhere cause it was a piece of shit
>>574473398But what is someone rapes your cunny?
>>574474272Yes, he might have a good understanding of rocketry but for everything else he is just talking out of his ass, from his "revolutionary" battieries that offer just 1% more efficiency to electric planes that wouldn't even take off.
>>574474483its not rape if i want it
>>574474310>reddit suddenly hates himwtf I love Elon Musk now
>>574471814The big advancement that has everyone in awe of Elon is that he made the rockets reusable. They perfected landing. This makes space flight MUCH cheaper. Before this every flight was one and done, they couldn't land them so every launch cost as much because you're doing it from scratch. Think of it like having to buy a new car after each use because there's no way to land it other than to aim for water. Now that rocket can be tested to make sure no repairs are needed and then shot right back into space. It's not quite FTL or warp but it's a hell of a step in the right direction.
>>574471118You dont have to believe it. you can go see it with your own eyes
space stuff post-cold war felt so stagnant and boring. thank god shit is actually happening now and theres swarms of private space enterprise/investment
>>574475746>everyone wanting to invest in starlink like crazy>thundercuck thinks he knows betterhe needs to stop inhaling his own farts
>>574470930Bros if you cant shoot in space yet how do you expect we will land on Mars?
>>574471118thunderbirds are go!
>>574471118>people actual think this is real
>>574471118>there are people who think this is not real>these people think space is not real>they don't think covid is realjust imagine people like this exist
>>574475206>suddenlyHe was demoted from God on Reddit for not taking the Heckin' Pandemic seriously enough.
>>574471118This looks like some simple shit the Nazis figured out 80 years ago
>>574471098Is your name Tracer Tong?
>>574471814billions of dollars evaporating into a retarded scam
>>574476052>>574476232>>574476361sorry i forgot this is nu-/v/ and its only real and impressive when china does it
>>574476052Why would it be fake? You can go there and see rocket with your own eyes, it's still there.
Genshin Impact has become a bigger cultural phenomenon than Zelda.
>>574476614yet it will have 0 permanence and everyone will forget about it in 5 years
>>574476410>>574476052its also live streamed 24/7 from 10+ angles by multiple youtube channelshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhJRzQsLZGghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziB6kVgQpnI
>>574476659Are you talking about zelda, lol? Literally everyone forgot about it.
>>574471118Why don't they design it so it can land on its long side rather than on its tiny base? Looks like they are making this harder than it needs to be.
>>574470930>not a single retard who lost his money on doge even attempted to murder himTwo conclusions out of that fact:Either people became too smart and nobody even invested anything besides joke lunch money into his memes, all the drama was fake bots building up hypeorRetards actually lost their life savings there and just choked on it and there is no hope at all anymore. If that bullshit was real and didn't lead to his death - nothing will.
>>574475746>I know better than Elons team of rocket scientistsNot even a science fag but this dude is cringe
>>574476762nobody outside of mentally ill kpop stan-tier fags on twitter care about genshin
>>574476407>Nazis are Chinese
>>574476659Nah, it will last 10-15 years at least, like WoW.They've only released 3/7 continents so far, and they're panning several smaller in between areas so the game has enough expansions planned for at least 5 to 7 years.
>NOO STARSHIP IS FAKE>ITS CGI>YOU CANT LITERALLY SEE IT FOR YOURSELF THE BEACH IS SECRETLY BANNED FOR THE PUBLIC ON THE DAY OF LAUNCH AND ALL THE CAMERAMEN AND PEOPLE WATCHING ARE GOVERNMENT ACTORS
>>574477014schizos are fucking retard what else is new?
I shot this image of the ISS bros
>>574476786By design, a rocket already has a thruster to slow down its descent when it's upright. If you want to land it sideways you need either more thrusters pointing to the side (dead weight during the ascent) or lifting surfaces to do it plane-style (dead weight during the ascent).
Where can I buy Mihoyo stock?
>>574476893What kind of mental illness do you have? Genshin literally has a higher interest peak after a fucking year after release than botw garbage had on it's day of release. Your nintrando garbage is completely irrelevant now.
>>574475746boring company is the only bullshit. But starlink is an actual working product so hes retarded.
Why does this African American make /v/ seethe so much?
>>574477253calm down anon dont forget to give up your daily $20 and roll for that png
>>574477151>If you want to land it sideways you need either more thrusters pointing to the sideDo you though?You can use the big thruster on the bottom to slow it down, and then use the existing side thrusters to turn it when it's almost at the ground.The impact would be a bit more impactful than the one seen in that webm, sure, but far easier to pull off. It doesn't seem totally impossible to me.
>>574472137Rent-free as always.
>>574476495don't worry about it goyim now pay reparations oy vey
Sure is JIDF in here
>>574477531Unless it's extremely bottom-heavy the rotation is gonna happen roughly at the center and leave the rocket far too high to touch down safely, even if you somehow stopped it in midair beforehand.The one thing I'm willing to question is why they don't have any kind of extendable landing gear at the bottom, but then again if they manage to land reliably without it's just dead weight.
>>574470930cab't wait for rolling for Elon.
>>574477992out of context
>>574471118Yes? It wasn't even a good landing. See that bounce after it hits the ground pretty hard.
He makes both pol-schizos and dumbfuck twitter lefties seethe. Must be doing something right
Why do poor people insist on defending rich people?
>>574476845I can't recall a single person among friends and relatives who didn't profit off crypto in the long run. It's hilarious easy, half an hour on /biz/ and you're practically good to go.
>>574470930Bros why is it impossible to shoot in space?
>>574478375Why do retard lefties assume that the smallest defense of a rich person's actions is equivalent to sucking their cock and that everything is completely fucking black and white?
>>574478652Enjoy voting for Thanksgiving, turkey.
>>574478731thank you oh enlightened one
>>574478798>no argument>soijack faggotEvery time.
>>574477146nice browas that before or after they added the new panels?
>>574478850sorry, care to point out what your argument was other than WEALTH BAD
>>574478027the landing gear was just disposable crush cores since its a prototypeonly mars/moons variants will have landing legs because earth landing variants will be caught by the towersee https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2bnv7hL6NAthe catching arms are nearly finished being assembled too
>>574478930I didn't say wealth is bad. You should just be aware that you are the dirt on their shoes. Elon worshippers are the worst of these types.
Also of note: He stated on SNL a confirmation that he does in fact have autism. He may be the wealthiest autistic person on Earth.
>>574479014black parts are the catching system and carriagered parts are just a truss/jig to hold it up during construction
>>574479034thank you for this low effort piece of info a 10 year old could deduce. truly a great insight into our political and economic world worth posting
>>574479171>blacks are at the bottomVERY BASED
>>574479243not for long
>574476845>all the drama was fake bots building up hypeYou just figured out 21st century propaganda aka social media
>>574478915after. Though my setup probably doesn't have enough aperature to resolve more detail, it's only a 5 inch reflector
>>574479446cool but how useful is that setup for voyeur purposes
>>574471118there are more than enough of legit reasons to shit on musk you dont need to become a shizo forthe man is a retard with no actual education, throughout his career he climbed the ladder by extruding the previous ceo's who actually founded the company and knew what they were doing unlike musk, currently his business and wealth are a house of cards existing solely on the hype generated by the media and his twitter followers that will gladly eat up his every lie and continently ignore his every fuckup of which there are many. Thankfully hes currently being sued for lying and manipulating his investors, which received close to zero media coverage as expected
>>574479446still pretty detailedhow much did it cost?
>>574479552bro he is the current original ceo of spacextesla basically didn't exist till he took over too
>>574471678of course the guy posting this can't spell
ELONIMPACT/USD 100x GO TO THE MOON
>>574479526190x magnification, so quite capable >>574479563Skywatcher 130p Heritage, only 220 USD or 240 Euros.Slightly bigger model named Skywatcher 150p Heritage costs 280 USDcomes with 10 and 20 mm eyepieces for roughly 25x and 65x magnification, get another quality 4mm eyepiece for planetary observation (around 60 USD) and you are still under 300.Dobsonian Reflector telescopes really aren't that expensive
>>574479985neat, that is pretty cheap reallynext expensive thing i am buying is a fpv drone setup, maybe a telescope or a microscope after
>>574480150as far as I heard the 150p is actually big enough to do deep sky objects like nebulas or galaxies decently, though I live in a city so I am limited to planetary observation, I should travel to the countryside some time.It's nice to have non gaming hobbies
>>574470930what the fuck was the point of all this
Real talk, why are Americans so powerful? Why the fuck are they allowed to be humanity's finest even after all the embarrassing shit they do? Why the fuck are they allowed to look at loli legally when we can't but at the same time have the most batshit feminists and social justice warriors?
>>574475746>all of these Muskfag butthurt repliesBased Thunderf00t.
>>574477457The latency is far worse than what we've got now. Unless you live in Africa its pointless.
>>574480904its better than what most americans have for internethttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owIXLlemmQwhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fh1a2K9ZgNAit was never marketed for cities with fiber anyway
>hey give us a ton of followers and we will hit follow on Elon muskWhat were they thinking
>>574476232Do you realise how large that rocket is?
>>574481374comparison with saturn v
>>574481245They were thinking it would bring them attention and it did. The downside is Musk fans are upset? Not really though. So I guess there's no downside
>>574481528genshin fans are upset since they are mainly commies and lefties and hate musk
>>574481589wtf i love musk now
>>574474014>He's just reusing decades old tech and discoveriesIf they're decades old then why has no one else done it?
>be American>wake up>click thread>see a bunch of schizo Europeans shitposting and accusing each other of being Americans while all the real Americans are asleep>againWhy are you retarded faggots so mentally ill? Meds are free in your countries, take them.
>>574481498>>574481374It's a big rocket
>>574481741>wakes up>first thing he does is go on /v/
>>574481876to be fair he probably ate a burger before or during that too
>>574474014muhhh ancient tech, muhhh we had this in the 80s muhh muhhh muhhThe fact is that nobody actually did anything. All of space was scrapped as soon as the cold war was over and nascar got more views than nasa. Im not sure why you are down playing this, its the only company who successfully utilizes these technologies to go to space and make sure we can keep going there. Meanwhile others rely on jewish/government funding and keep themselves grounded cause they are told to and its basically just a money laundering scheme for their benefactors.
>>574470930He has already been in since the start though
>>574481498if this thing ever explodes on launch or even after (like many musk's ships did) it will destroy everything in tens kilometers radius. The launch pod, animals from the reserves that are around the place, people that are still living nearby and being constantly pressured to leaveAnd even if it doesnt, the noise level in 220 db will guaranteed to kill everything nearby anyway
I hate rich people but Elon is an exception because he posts memes and is so quirky and nerdy just like me haha :D
>>574470930What the hell is Genshin Impact?
>>574476614More like a nigger cultural phenomenon.
>>574482070Genshin Impact is a video game
>>574482034go back to twitter
>>574482034lmao you fell for the meme math about the blast radiuslook up how bad the n1 explosion was it wasn't even close to 10k
>>574482162from which you obviously came being a fan of the con man
>>574471118industrial light and magic, probably an intern could do that render in unreal 4
>>574482230stop watching skeptic brain rot
>>574471118I love how zoomers cum in their pants over the idea of a reusable space shit when that's literally what the space shuttle was, it was designed to be reusable to cut costs.The thing is, it had the opposite effect, it ended up costing NASA a fortune to maintain them and as we all know, one of them exploded in heroic fashion on live TV.Can't wait for one of Elon's rockets to explode into a million pieces so he will get the blame for another national tragedy. His face looks like a slice of ham glued onto the head of a prototype terminator that failed QA
>>574482034rocket fuel does not mix properly when they explodeits more like a shitty fireball than a big explosion
>>574482316nasa are the ones actually doing useful science, elon is just farming government subsidies for his inflated ego
>>574482369>it was designed to be reusable to cut costs.the original plan was for cost cutting reusability, then the airforce meddled with it and we got the monstrosity that NASA had to work with
>>574471019the world really did end in 2012 and we're all in hell now
>>574482495>subsidiesyou don't even know what that word means kek
>>574482624so musks defenders are 12 year old, should have known
>all these paid maggots shilling for muskDenny all you want it only makes it more apparent.
>>574482834>trusting the (((media)))
>>574483004>nooo you aren't allowed to correct schizos or refute the blatant commie lies
>>574483010the media are the ones hyping his bullshit up retard, without them he would never be able to scam so many people and even the government departments that hire him for some reason even tho he practically never delivers on the contract
>>574470930 The exact moment Rick and Morty turned to shit was letting this talentless hack guest on their shoe as himself.
Musk is already a little girl in the game. He achieved anon's dream, which most of us will never reach.
>>574482582right on my birthday
Success breed jealousy, or in case of anon, mental illness
>>574471118lmao this has to be a PS3 cutscene. Space fakery really hasn't improved much in 60 years.

>>574476910chinks are basically the modern nazis
>>574481498>my obelisk is bigger and impregnates the sky better Rocket launches are a phallic ritual done by mystery cults with huge budgets. Of course the funny thing is that they never actually impregnate the heavens, they are impotent and fall to the ocean.
>>574471118I've been in doubt for a while now.
>>574481946little bit of thishe is the only one trying to do anything with space beyond launching satellites to spy on other or dropping tungsten rod from orbit

>>574476410>>574476678Weren't they supposed to do a 100km test launch in summer?What happened?
>another multi-billionaire trust fund celebrity fellation thread
>>574470930Yet another daily reminder Genshin is a cultural phenomenon, and mods and autistic screetchers can't do anything about it
>>574485082Honestly space is real but all the fake shit all these space agencies do just makes it seem like they don't want to show off the real space due to government secrecy(You can notice the chick on the upper right is using hair spray to be stiff because in low gravity your hair should be flowy) I've been on a zero-g plane before and you can notice your hair is going to be everywhere
>>574484505you believe the moon landing didnt happen?
>>574476104i really wonder how can a man become so disconnected with reality
>>574470930Someone needs to shoot this hack, i can't stand seeing his ugly face on my computer screen anymore
What do schizos think ISS observed from the ground is? >>574477146
>>574480712You gotta take the good with the bad. The worst of us can inspire the best of us to be better than they otherwise would be.

>>574470930>one of the left's idols is a capitalistwhat
What's with space being so attractive for low IQ schizos who thinks lizard people is among us? Always hilarious to see them lecture people on science and media manipulation while they read shit on the wiki
>>574472958You dont however
>>574471118Anyone counted for how many rocket flights do we have fuel left on the planet?
>>574488141people fear what they don't understand, also they like to latch onto things that will give them attentionnobody gives a shit if you think the earth is round because that's the accepted truth, but if you say its flat people pay attention to you even if its to tell you to go fuck yourself.
>>574488141people think going to space will suddenly solve all the world conflicts and racism
>>574488116Nice edit, but we all know the original tiktok was about how life would improve without blacks.
>>574488003all this tells me is that cameras 50 years ago were shit

>>5744881852, 3 if you use piss engines
>>574488258>do own research>some blogger says bleach will make you immune to illnesses>because others are laughing at him, he must be on to something and you inject bleach and die
>>574486761Unironically they think they are weather balloons.
>>574474014>He's just reusing decades old tech and discoveriesIsn't that the point? Using cheaper off the shelf tech and then making it reusable to make space flight economically viable. There is a reason why nearly every other rocket manufacturer is trying to follow in Space X's footsteps now.
>>574472170>MechazillaGod bless STEM nerds.
>>574471118This, space rockets are a hoax like vaccines and 9/11.
>>574470930A Fontain inventor?
>>574484505yes congrats you schizo retard, its a mock of the actual launch which an anon posted further down. Your meds are ready by the way, keep taking them
>>574471814Non-American cope distilled into a rocket the size of an office building.Musk FUDers and bobos absolutely frothing right now.
Why would anyone even want to go to space? It's nothing but balls of gas, balls of ice and super monkey balls. Fucking waste of money.
>>574476104yeah non-cattle exist too. Jews are so right when they call you retards goyim

>>574488185If you use hydrogen you can nearly get as many as you want if you use renewables to make it.
>>574488797To get more resources. Plenty of precious metals/rare earth elements out there to bring back.
>>574488141Anybody can go out at night and look at the stars.It's so distant and alien, so beyond daily life.Some want to know what's actually out there, how far mankind is willing to push its limits to explore beyond the known world.Others are content with looking up there and imagining little green men coming from it to establish a one world government on Earth for reasons.
I remember before atechan died, some schizo on /x/ swallowed radioactive material he bought online and was documenting the holes and lesions slowly appearing in his chest and stomach, asking why it hurt so much and why he wasnt getting stronger like in his visions. he started posting timecaps too and holy shit I wonder if that guy is dead now since the site went dead a day or so after that thanks to the NZ shooting
>>574488971Super monkey balls contain no resources
We should just round up and imprison conspiracy tards. Reasonable people won't have to suffer their company anymore, and the conspiracy tards can feel gratified because a major governmental body is actually out to get them.It's a win-win.
>>574489113>why he wasnt getting stronger like in his visions.Fucking kek.

>>574480712>Real talk, why are Americans so powerful?nazi scientists
>>574475526So it's a space shuttle that requires much more fuel to land.
>>574472438It’s not even that, only the original owner gets cuts from future sales, every owner after that is just trying to flip it for more to someone richer and dumber
>>574471118>>574471423Fucking kek. How are people this gullible that they'd believe this? I wonder why they create all this fake space cgi stuff though. The only reason I can think, is that jews do it to make people believe less in the bible and god. When in reality god created space, and the earth might end up being flat for all we know. Space travel makes people prone to believing in science, which for the most part isn't real and is just a product of god's magic.
>>574489625>god's magicNigger, you don't even know anything about theology.
>>574478317I think that particular one explodes after a bit in the video.
>>574477457He doesn't actually say anything objectively false, Starlink anywhere but some remote location is a complete waste.The problems that it fixes shouldn't exist in the first place, we have considerably better ways of supplying internet connectivity to just about anybody on the planet. The problem is entirely in lobbying and politics, Starlink for many people exists only as their one real choice in a world where money and corruption stands in the way of progress.It's objectively shit and incredibly wasteful, but at least it's less shit than the alternative.
>>574471118>that undcontrolled fire that starts to grow right before touchdown>that bouncenice touches
>>574489898I don't know what the word theology means and I'm not going to google it just so I can respond to you.

>>574489408>>574480712That's cool and all but consider this.Russians managed to be the first to space despite being a backwater shithole not 50 years before their flight AND they were financially burdened by a shit communist economic system.I don't get what's impressive about this. You can achieve anything if you pour enough money into it( but nobody is insane enough to dump billions into something without a return).Not a pinko. I just think the fact that slavs got to space with the equivalent of ducktape and cardboard pretty underrated.
Musk should just stick to rockets and never attempt urban planning ever again. This stupid thing is a monument to the tech dudebro cancer we see so common today.

>>574476410I don't want to come see your expensive dildo
>>574477014they just launch their penis monuments into the sky like missiles, they go up in a subtle arc and go back down landing somewhere else. I assume they launch it or an identical one back from an undisclosed location
>>574482369>and as we all know, one of them exploded in heroic fashion on live TV.>Throughout the program, the Space Shuttle had 135 missions,:III–398 of which 133 returned safely.Fun fact: in the US, you are historically more likely to survive a trip aboard a space shuttle than you are a Covid-19 infection.
Question: What do schizos think the U.S government would get out of lying about space travel?
>>574491992A more positive image about being more technologically advanced
>>574491992Some people claim the moon landing was faked because of the cold war. And then everything after was just because they were too embarrassed to tell people they lied I guess?Don't ask these people to think.
>>574482369But it works if you do it right. The Falcon 9 is one on the cheaper rockets per tonne out there because of the reusable booster and has a very good reliability rate.
>>574491992Getting the space oil under the moon surface without having to worry about potential competition.
>>574470930Rabid anti musk rhetoric and the robotic propaganda campaign against him went into full effect when dogecoin started to explode because it put other crypto and financial markets at risk.You’re all just easily influenced pawns in a thousand different simultaneous games. Constantly influenced by memes and propaganda that you are trained like animals to repeat endlessly.
>>574471098can't care about societyonly care about the internet and who's in it.and a lot of people need to be banished permanently from it
>>574492540But wait a second, who could possibly have a vested interest in squashing alternative forms of money management...?
>>574489430>ShuttleIt's the shuttle if the shuttle could take 100 tons to orbit and both stages were reusable.For reference, the $/kg to take something to orbit on the shuttle was about $54,000/kgStarship's projected to cost under $100/kg.
>>574492540I found it funny how in one minute some people where sucking his dick when he was pumping crypto and then the next they were asking for him to to be shot when it dumped over a single tweet.

>>574473630No, because the CSGO skin market makes sense, you can have a fancy knife in your counter strike game.You can't do shit with these things

At worst, it's going to end satellites as a whole.
>>574471118You can drive to the launch and landing areas to film them go up and down. There are some cool vids from spacefags here you can hear the sonic booms when the rocket is landing.

>>574470930I at least enjoy how much Musk makes lefties seethe for whatever reason.
>>574490072> lobbying and politicsExactly. Starlink is up and working right now so people like me that live in bumfuck nowhere in the US can have some decent internet. Anything is better than the shit I have. Instead of competing with starlink they have been lobbying to block funding going to starlink instead. It's a shame about all the space junk though.

>>574495660Start Guidefor Astronomy you say?First, you need to know the types of telescopes>refractor telescopesyour classic telescope with lenses.Usually differentiated in:achromaticandapochromatic achromatic ones are cheaper, but can have chromatic aberration. Apochromatic ones are better and eliminate pretty much all color inconsistencies, but cost 4 digit dollerinos>reflector telescopesvery simplistic, also called newtonian reflectors because newton build one hundreds of years ago. Basically a big tube with a mirror, reflecting on a secondary mirror, which then reflects in your eyepiece.Wide opening, inexpensive, usually recommended to people starting out, especially if you want to see deep space objects like galaxies or nebula.You need to colliminate them from time to time, basically adjusting the primary and secondary mirror for an optimal image. It's relatively easy though.>catadioptric (or compound) telescopesSimilair to newtonian reflectors it also uses mirrors, but in a more compact form factor.
>>574502379Then, you should know the type of mounts there are>alt-az>dobson>equatorialfairly self explainatory from pic related
>>574502379good post anon
>>574475206>>574476217Reddit still sucks his cock though
>>574502379which is best for spying on my neighbors?
>>574502480>fairly self explainatory from pic relatedfuckWhich one should you consider as a beginner?A dobson mount with a newtonian reflector, usually just>dobsonian reflectorcheap but workable mount which you either place on the ground or a table/chain depending on the size of the telescope. The inexpensive mount means most of the production cost goes into the optics, and reflector telescopes are easy to produce to begin with.
>>574502379What's the one you used for the webms you posted? Achromatic refractor?
Anyone looking forward to James Webb launch? Thoughts on their concerns about sabotage because the SJWs only now started to complain about James Webb?
>>574502669Things you should know about size, aperature and focal length:>aperature how wide the opening of your telescope is. This affects how much light it can gather, the bigger you can afford (and manage in size) the better>focal lengththe distance light travels from the aperature to the eyepiece.The relationship between aperature and focal length determines your magnification (in combination with an eye piece) and field of view.>Eye piecesalso have a number on them showing their focal length, also in mm. My telescope came with two different ones, a 25mm eye piece and a 10 mm.To calculate the magnification, you simply divide the focal length of the telescope by the eye piece. For my telescope, thats 650/10= 65x magnification, or 650/25= 26x magnification.For beginners, an 5-8 inch dobsonian reflector is a good balance between price and size, ranging anywhere from 250-500 USD.
>>574471118> No heat plating, which adds additional 30% mass.This is a child's rocket project, there is no way this thing could leave the atmosphere and come back.
>>574471118musk made them for soviets and converted them into fighters.

All I did was use a telescope smartphone mount, the pictures/videos were taken with an iPhone.There is a lot of post processing involved, but you can definitely see detail like cloud bands on jupiter or the rings of saturn even with an inexpensive telescope.You probably could see some brighter nebulas, galaxys and star clusters too, but that depends on light pollution. Since I am in a city, I am limited to planetary observation. But planets are visible even in the most light polluted places, if that interests you definitely consider it, I've been having fun.

>>574508174Not to mention the DC-X only made 3km vertical hops where as Starship has already done 10km+ hops that involve a complicated glide pattern and the landing flip. Also in a few weeks we are going to see an actual suborbital flight. While DC-X is indeed the first VTOL capable rocket, its extremely dishonest to say Starship isn't doing anything new.

I always thought it was about constructing productive enterprise and using it to develop yourself alongside the rest of your community, but I guess that's just a boomer myth these days.>>574518864>gets billions of dollars of public funding>pays less than $70,000 in taxes>"what grift?"He beat a bunch of military-industry cronies by taking their place, not by working outside the system lmao. He's actually the natural evolution of their scheme. His shit is cheaper and of less quality, but he gets paid more than any of the individual representatives of the entities he usurped ever did.
>>574520109>leech off society by taking and taking from the public fund and giving nothing concrete in return.Any examples?Seems like he has delivered on every gov contract he has ever got
>>574520109>This is the first I've heard that the American Dream means getting billions of dollars in taxpayer money just to enrich yourself and give almost none of it back to society.they didnt just give it to some random out of the fucking blue, lmao. he did it doing the american dream SO HARD that the government wanted in. and "not enriching" us? every day space flight and travel becomes accessible to the average every day man. we now know you can send a fucking 90 year old fucking actor into space safely. What did nasa do to make space travel safer for the general population since 19fucking58?>but shatners a famous actor!fucking exactly. the bar has gone from "be specifically procured by nasa" to "have some clout" in just NINETEEN years.elon musk is a business man and if he can monopilize casual space travel like airports, good on him. I look forward to 20 years from now when i can walk into a "spaceport" and laugh at flat earthers from orbit"
>>574520109>His shit is cheaper and of less qualityFalcon 9 has one of the best safety records in rocket historyOne of the few human rated rockets and capsules too
i couldnt imagine anything more retarded than being excited for a unpiloted rocket that was paid for by your tax dollars to jerk off elons ego lmao
>>574521030Then you must not be a fan of spaceflighthttps://caseyhandmer.wordpress.com/2019/10/29/the-spacex-starship-is-a-very-big-deal/
>>574521030yes lets be more excited by nasa doing the same thi-well, not actually doing anything with the same billions lmao
>>574521129I'm not because i'm not a retard amused by obvious grifts that get billions of dollars of government subsidies a year so we can send William Shatner to "space". >people ITT thinking they'll be going to a space Hilton in 20 years
>>574521030yeah i wish it was going to more bed ridden shaniquas instead
>>574521239LMAO, Starship has higher and loftier ambitions than mere LEO tourism
>>574520562Government contracts exists to privatize public wealth, achieving a goal is secondary. Cut the budget in half and that's the real cost, everything else goes to Musk and never comes back.>>574520619>>574520701You have ten minutes to explain what concrete benefits SpaceX provides to society as a whole that outmatches the cost paid by the taxpayer. No scientistic zealotry, no vagueness. He gets billions of dollars in our money, where exactly does society get those billions of dollars back from his projects? What are the concrete benefits that the average tax-paying American gets from Musk?
>>574521396>edgy retard elon shill outs himself as more of a retardwhat a shock we put a fucking man on the moon 60 years ago with 1/100th of the budget that these grifters.
>>574521576Funny you're trying to argue prices hereDon't look up the cost of a single SLS launch, you'll might blow a gasket
>>574521239Contracts are not susbsidies
>>574521417lower the bar for space travel closer to the common man, lmao. did you fuckin read.
>>574521417>He gets billions of dollars in our money, where exactly does society get those billions of dollars back from his projects? What are the concrete benefits that the average tax-paying American gets from Musk?Billions from launches flowing into america instead of russia or chinahttps://youtu.be/5vB9vzE-qy0They have saved NASA billions too
>>574471098Well you're a textbook conservative. Fear of the future keeps you rooted in the past or how things were. I hope you understand I don't mean that as a bad thing, parts of society need to remain rooted and a little fear of the unknown and not understood is a good thing. Still I can't help but notice the absurdity of posting "I wish there was no internet" on the internet. If you don't like it so much, why are you here?Kys
>>574521576fuck lol. the apollo program cost more than elon musks entire networth.
>>574521576>we put a fucking man on the moon 60 years ago with 1/100th of the budget that these grifters.No we didn't. Even SLS is cheap compared to apollo. And starship makes the SLS look insanely expensive
>>574520109Can you speak anything other than schizo?What exactly did (You) contribute to society? Just come out and say that you're mad jelly and get it over with. Why the mental gymnastics pretending like you give a shit muh society and not only yourself?
>>574521576>we put a fucking man on the moon 60 years ago with 1/100th of the budget that these grifters.Thanks for proving how retarded you are holy shit

>>574521576I like how when it's something good it's "we", but when it isn't it's "him".You didn't do shit, fatso.Also dipshit, the value of money wasn't the same in the 60.
>>574502379Wait, how the fuck doesn’t the secondary mirror block what you’re seeing?
>>574470930Sisters we won
>>574521576Apollo cost 260 billion dollarsSpacex is offering NASA a vehicle that's better than on anything else on the market for 3 billion
>>574480712You know why, yes?Because we are the best fucking things in the universe. And even though there's clearly a quota of kids that have to be on the cover of Vogue, it's the least of the reason why it's okay to let these turds on the cover: we're the best thing in the universe, we're humanity's best example, and it's okay to glorify us in spite of ourselves. You can acknowledge that we're fucked up and we have flaws, but if you're still running around like a sexist dickweed on the internet, you're pretty much SOL.I'm guilty of both. I write in an artistic medium (so obviously it's okay that I'm being racist in a way that could get me sued, but I'm okay with that because I make art. It's more likely that I'll be attacked for the racism I write about)
Why do Americans only se black and white? Why are they so stupid? Literal NPCs who can only tell 0 and 1.
>>574491287>The space shuttle is not a rocketinbred alert
>>574522893Thanks m8.>>574523054See above
>>574522893while this makes a pretty great point (we should be going after billionaires harder instead of basically just a single somewhat attractive latino mommy who i'd allow to step on me), it also misses the massive cultural shift that started way earlier than that.minority / women's rights / lgbt movements weren't invented in the 2010s, but the spread of information with the internet was exponential and picking up steam. social networks helped a lot in their growth (and also helped mouthbreathers get in touch with other mouthbreathers)
>>574488116It's not the "patriarchy" who perpetuates these things, it's women It's women who can't stand to see men show emotions, it's women who would think less of a man who got raped.
>>574523054Most americans are obese and diabeticIt impacts your brain
>>574523292How would you go after billionares?Wealth tax?You'll just kill private business like the brits haveYou just want to punish successful people
>>574521417SpaceX saved American taxpayers $2 billion by flying NASA's Europa Clipper on a Falcon Heavy instead of SLS https://www.theverge.com/2021/7/23/22590682/nasa-europa-clipper-spacex-falcon-heavyNASA also saves about $40 million every time an astronaut flies on Dragon instead of Soyuz.
>>574521417It boils down to the fact that I'd rather have the government give SpaceX money because it's better than fucking Boeing and Lockheed sitting on their asses doing fuck all and using cost-plus contracts to rape the tax payer for all their worth, before turning around and using their rape money to lobby congress into giving them even more rape money.Reminder that we had to rely on the fucking Soyuz for over a decade before SpaceX filled the gap since old space was too lazy/incompetent.
>>574523380Just take their money and give it to me because .. uh...I deserve it or some shit :^)
>>574520109Musk fans are annoying but the anti-Musk schizo cultists are so much worse.
>>574522082I ask you for the concrete benefits it provides for the average tax-payer and you return with fantasies about space vacations. Cultist.>>574522096Technological competition with other countries is not a profitable activity for society as a whole. If you are premising the cost of such a tech war as a given, you are already conceding.
For all you who think that Musk doesn't do any actual engineering:https://www.reddit.com/r/SpaceXLounge/comments/k1e0ta/evidence_that_musk_is_the_chief_engineer_of_spacex/
>>574523619Or you know, you can acknowledge an achievement regardless of the person.When I see self landing rocket magic i don't think of Musk sitting in a tiny room coding the entire landing sequence. I think about how much work it must have been for a lot of people to manage all that. Attributing the whole thing to Musk whether he did something good or bad is absolutely retarded to begin with.
>>574523629Watch the video i linked. Goes over how spacex saved just NASA alone billionsTax dollars flowing into american aerospace are worth more since it fucks russia over
>>574523380>You just want to punish (((successful people)))FTFY, Levi Ben Straumberg
>>574523629>I ask you for the concrete benefits it provides for the average tax-payer and you return with fantasies about space vacations>everything should be about me me me me me me

>>574523818>Literally linking to reddit for a question no one askedFuck off
>>574489387what part of that is manchild?
>>574523507Now it's Musk doing the raping, a great improvement.SpaceX was not necessary to initiate a new era of space development, it was simply the most profitable for the people involved. A real innovative endeavor would have revitalized the public development of space technology, not surrendered all agency and funds to private interests.
>>574523629i did lmao
>>574524009The gov needs less tax money not moreThey are obviously useless. So lets have the wealthy run the nation
>>574524154Why are you a commie?Private rockets means the price is cheaper for everyone
>>574479665that only means he used daddy's diamond money to hire competent people to build his company for him, many such cases, guy is actually a fool
>>574523629SpaceX saved NASA money because NASA was not able or willing to develop the means to cut costs itself. That only requires the reinvigoration of public R&D, the shift to private development was done only because it was the easiest way of grifting off of tax dollars.>>574523950If the tax-payer is paying the bills the government has a duty, sanctified in the Constitution and all related legal theory, to make good on that investment. If SpaceX does not give an equivalent return, it should not be receiving funding.
>>574491974you are not very good at math
>>574524154>SpaceX was not necessary to initiate a new era of space developmentBullshitThe public sector was fucked by contractors and politics, an outside entity was the only way to get out of that groove.For example the original shuttle was also supposed to be extremely cheap and reusable, but then contractors and other government bodies (namely the airforce) got into the picture and the cost skyrocketed.
>>574478375Musk is cringe, but it's a meme to hate him
>>574524078It was in response to>>574523834Nobody actually thinks Musk alone is responsible for SpaceX. But there are people who think he does nothing but post memes and count money all day.
>>574471118I watched the full video on youtube the ascension looks real the descent look faked and the final clip after the landing and the smoke has "settled" looks real probably taken before lift off
>>574523629You ignored>>574523501And resorted to insults. It's easy to imagine you're right when you think everyone who disagrees with you is insane.
>commies can't refute thishttps://youtu.be/5vB9vzE-qy0Reminder that falcon 9 only cost 400 million. NASA themselves said they couldn't build something similiar for under 4 BILLLION
>>574524078>waaah it's wedditThe quotes are not from redditors.
>>574525020Commies seem to forget that Soviet union also went to space on the money that should've gone to "the people".
>>574524562This is a primitive superstition.Private rockets are cheaper than public rockets because they have the full support of the private interests involved, while a public development program will always face undercutting and political sabotage from the private interests, like Boeing and SpaceX, that stand to gain immensely from the money that they could reap by having a monopoly on technological development in a given field.>>574524704An issue of conditional inefficiency is not a reason to abandon any attempt at public development.>>574524958first part of >>574524626 was for them. Didn't even insult them anywhere.
>>574524957Check the vids in these replies>>574472685It was filmed by a shit ton of people
>>574524154If it's so easy to create a company like SpaceX, why didn't someone else do it? And why has nobody done it since?
>>574525174Private rockets are better since they work for profit. Public rockets don't have that constraintCompetition reduces costs too. Public rockets are by default a monopoly
>>574523380>You just want to punish successful peopleYes, and I will continue until I am more successful than they areThat's the way this planet has worked for billions of years
Good video games thread, guys.
>>574525641Based but using the gov to do it is cringe
>What's really remarkable to me is the breadth of his knowledge. I mean I've met a lot of super super smart people but they're usually super super smart on one thing and he's able to have conversations with our top engineers about the software, and the most arcane aspects of that and then he'll turn to our manufacturing engineers and have discussions about some really esoteric welding process for some crazy alloy and he'll just go back and forth and his ability to do that across the different technologies that go into rockets cars and everything else he does.-Garriet Reisman, former NASA astronaut + former SpaceX employee>Elon is brilliant. He’s involved in just about everything. He understands everything. If he asks you a question, you learn very quickly not to go give him a gut reaction.>He wants answers that get down to the fundamental laws of physics. One thing he understands really well is the physics of the rockets. He understands that like nobody else. The stuff I have seen him do in his head is crazy.>He can get in discussions about flying a satellite and whether we can make the right orbit and deliver Dragon at the same time and solve all these equations in real time. It’s amazing to watch the amount of knowledge he has accumulated over the years.-Kevin Watson, NASA engineer>Elon Musk is an idiot-Some rando on 4chan
>>574525671Videogames need to be regulated alreadyImagine how many rocket scientists we lost to the drug known as vidya
>>574525263Somebody else could have done it, and I'm sure there was competition in the beginning. But once Musk's connections, money, and slimy salesmanship got him the position it was over. Nobody has done it since because there is now no need for it, the people who would already got what they want. The barrel of the public fund has been opened, and the money pours out like wine to everybody with a cup. Making another hole would just be unnecessary work.
>>574525174>An issue of conditional inefficiency is not a reason to abandon any attempt at public development.The public/traditional method hasn't been abandoned, it's just shit.If the government worked differently and wasn't a corrupt piece of shit perhaps you'd be right, but the fact of the matter is that a private industry that actually cares about the timeline they work on is infinitely better than the alternative method we've had since the end of the space race.>>574525671This is an autism thread, anon
>>574525871>Nobody has done it since because there is now no need for itHave you never heard of ULA or boeing????
